Thomas Family Center for Entrepreneurship

Mission Statement

The mission of the TFCE is focused on education, research, planning, technology transfer, and community engagement. The intent of TFCE is to stimulate entrepreneurial thinking amongst the UNCP student body, as well as assist and support entrepreneurs and new ventures in the Southeastern North Carolina Region.

TFCE consultants reach out and support the community by providing one-on-one consulting and evaluation services for local entrepreneurs while assisting students in developing entrepreneurial competencies and knowledge. The result is to extend entrepreneurship education outside the classroom by allowing students to work with local entrepreneurs on critical business challenges.
